Bromelain, a Natural Treatment of Pelvic Pain with No Side Effects

By Kyle J. Norton

The pelvic girdle or hip girdle is formed by a single bone which serves as the attachment point for each lower limb.

Pelvic pain is a pain in the lowest part of the abdomen and pelvis.

In women, pelvic pain in most cases is associated with the symptoms arising from the reproductive, urinary or digestive systems.

In women, the most common causes of pelvic pain are
* Adenomyosis is a condition associated with menstrual cramp caused by the inner lining of the uterus that breaks through the muscle wall of the uterus. Adenomyosis has a negative influence on the quality of life of patients.

* Endometriosis is a medical condition characterized by the growth of endometrial cells somewhere else instead of the inside of the uterus. Endometriosis also reacts to the women menstrual cycle, leading to severe menstrual pain with maturation with no way to escape.

* Premenstrual syndrome is a faulty function of the ovaries related to the women's menstrual cycle, affecting over 70% to 90% of women in the US. The syndrome also interferes women's physical and emotional states, and daily activities as a result of hormone fluctuation that occurs one to two weeks before menstruation and then declines when the period starts.

* Mittelschmerz is one-sided, lower abdominal pain associated with ovulation occurred in the midway through a menstrual cycle, about 14 days before the next menstrual period. 

Conventionally, treatment of pelvic pain is to relieve pain with over-the-counter pain medicine, such as aspirin, ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin IB, others) or acetaminophen (Tylenol, others).

If you are a long-term user of pain relievers, please make sure you know all the side effect for preventive measure.

Bromelain, a proteolytic enzyme found in pineapples (Ananas comosus) has been used in traditional medicine as an inflammatory agent and to treat pains, strains, and muscle aches and pains and ease back pain and chronic joint pain, skin diseases, etc.

With an aim to find a natural compound for the treatment of pelvic pain, researchers evaluated the efficacy of bromelain affected by chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CP/CPPS).

The study included patients diagnosed with CP/CPPS between January and December 2015 were randomly assigned to receive oral capsules of pollen extract and vitamins (group A) or bromelain (group B) for 3 months.

According to the returned of completed questionnaires from the 65 male patients, 8 of the 33 patients in the bromelain group showed a significant reduction in the NIH-CPSI total score compared to b24 of the 32 patients in group A.

In other words, pollen extract and vitamins (group A) treated group exerted a better outcome after 3 months of treatment.

Furthermore, levels of pro-inflammatory cytokines were significantly lower in group A compared to group B.

In the follow-up visit, group A showed a statistically significant reduction in the levels of IL-8 compared to the enrolment levels, compared to group B.

These results suggested that the efficacy of both pollen extract and vitamins (group A) and bromelain (group B) relief the pelvic pain through their anti-inflammatory activities, particularly in  IL-8.

Taken altogether, bromelain may be considered a remedy for the prevention and treatment of pelvic pain, pending to the confirmation of the larger sample size and multicenter human study.

Intake of bromelain in the form of supplement should be taken with extreme care to prevent overdose acute liver toxicity.
